Yeah, it's half a step too high, for example, the 1st chord should be an A#5. If you apply this to the whole tab, it should be pretty much OK, with a bit more detail.

On another note, I saw this tab on another tab website in the same (wrong) key as this. Coincidence?

thanks guys, ive edited it now. i got it like that from watching a live performance, maybe they had it in a different tuning, or maybe i just forgot, it was quite a while ago. but anyway, thanks.
